Dr Bérénice Boutin is senior researcher in international law at the Asser Institute, Coordinator of the research strand on Disruptive Technologies in Peace and Security, and project leader of the NWO-funded  project Designing International Law and Ethics into Military Artificial Intelligence (DILEMA).

This includes the role of international law in the governance and regulation of technologies, and the impact of new technologies on core notions and concepts of international law.
